The staff were friendly and the service very good. The gym/spa was good. (We enjoyed the pisco sour demonstration.) We were in Cusco at the...

Just writing a review to Casa Cartagena makes me want to go back today! We were two couples traveling do Peru to do the 4-day Inca Trail - which was amazing. Cusco was our destination to acclimatize for 4 days and after the trail, we stayed at CC for one more night. From the first exchange of emails and requests,...

We visited Casa Cartagena before and after a trip to Machu Pichu. Right from the outset, the service was outstanding - everyone seemed genuinely committed to making sure our stay was a enjoyable. The rooms and grounds are a wonderful mixture of old Cusco and art nouveau (we were told 'Italian'). Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. We loved the...

Very nice hotel, the room was spacious. The staff attentive, great welcome drink and complimentary Hors d’oeuvres. Easy walk to main plaza. Thing didn’t like: can’t put toilet paper in toilet, kept “tripping over” mini steps in lobby/bar area, the frosted glass door on the bathroom. The beds not so comfortable. Recommend Marcelo Batata Restaurant for Guinea Pig or “Coy”...

We spent 5 nights here in May 2013, before and after a trip to Machu Pichu. The staff is exceptional, from the ease of checking in at the front desk to the housekeepers, bellboys and waiting staff. The hotel breakfasts were wonderful, it was like having access to the lovely big kitchen of your favourite aunt, including a selection of...

We love this hotel. The rooms are fantastic. The staff are friendly, helpful and obviously have a love for the hotel. The location is superb. This hotel is a must for anyone staying in Cusco. We also stayed one night at Monasterio, and it was a big mistake in comparison to this hotel.

As others have noted, the location is great, staff wonderful, breakfasts heavenly. There is an espresso machine in the restaurant!! The laundry is reasonably priced, though more expensive than the many lavanderias nearby. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Cartagena CuscoHigh in the Peruvian Andes lies the historic city of Cuzco, famous for its unique blend of Spanish and Incan cultures. Located just off a tranquil square behind the main plaza of Cuzco, Casa Cartagena Boutique Hotel & Spa Cusco emerges after years of restoration, which respected the original design of the historic house, to become one of the most exclusive boutique hotels in the city. Its walls of carved stone, which combines warmth, elegance and perfection, invite you to experience the fascinating magic and traditional mysticism that will transport you through time in this historic Spanish house declared a cultural heritage site of Peru.Its lovely atmosphere was built on an ancient Incan site, occupied by the ruling nobility of that time and from which it takes its name: Casa Cartagena, former property of the local Spanish ruler of Cuzco, Don Fernando Cartagena and Santa Cruz.This luxury hotel in Cuzco is an intimate refuge that has only sixteen spacious and comfortable suites, which perfectly blend the modern with the ancestral and luxury with the historical. The rooms are distributed symmetrically along a spacious patio of your dreams where time is suspended. It is located in the historic center of Cuzco, which was declared by UNESCO as a world heritage site.Recovery from an exhausting trip to Machu Picchu or the Sacred Valley of the Incas with our Qoya Spa will be something truly unequalled. It can be perfectly complemented with a delicious dinner in our restaurant which offers the best of local cuisine, "La bodega de la Chola", where poet Pablo Neruda was inspired and Che Guevara shared bohemian nights; it is considered one of the best restaurants in Cuzco.All of these unique features of Casa Cartagena and our warm and personalized service will make your stay in Cuzco an experience you will never forget. ... more   less
